Mansur Uchakaev, coach of Russian UFC featherweight Zabit Magomedsharipov, said the Russian fighter’s team would not comment on rumors of his possible retirement yet.
“We have now such a period when we, like on YouTube, paused the video. We will not give any comments on this yet. Time will tell. There is always hope, we will see now. We will carry out some medical procedures and see,” – said Mansur Uchakaev in an interview with the Vestnik MMA YouTube channel.
Recall that in April Magomedsharipov was excluded from the UFC featherweight ranking, where he was in third place. Later, information appeared that the fighter was considering the possibility of ending his fighting career. Zabit planned to carry out an operation, and only then decide on his future, but he had to postpone surgery.
